11. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Premiere Date: April 5, 2019

Season: 1-Part 2 (9 episodes)

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa based on his Archie Comics series by the same name. The first season of the supernatural horror series debuted last October and was followed by a holiday special, “A Midwinter’s Tale.” The new episodes hitting this April will serve as the second half of the first season.

The series revolves around teenage half-witch, half-mortal, Sabrina Spellman. The young half-witch is tasked with a difficult decision as she approached her sixteenth birthday. In order to follow her family along the Path of Night, she must perform her dark baptism and pledge her loyalty to the Dark Lord. Doing so would mean the end of her normal life alongside her mortal boyfriend Harvey and her best friends.

Kiernan Shipka portrays the lead role of Sabrina while her aunts are played by Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto. Ross Lynch, Jaz Sinclair, and Lachlan Watson play Sabrina’s closest mortal friends as Harvey, Rosalind, and Susie. The rest of the cast includes Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Richard Coyle, and Gavin Leatherwood.

As the first half of the season dealt with Sabrina’s decision in joining the Church of Night, the second half will deal with the ramifications of her pledge to darkness. Sabrina is more powerful than ever before but her choice had consequences with her mortal relationships. She will continue down that darker path with the same reluctance in fully pledging her loyalty to the Dark Lord. Whether she can save her relationship with Harvey remains to be unseen, especially with warlock Nick in the mix.
